This is probably easy but I can't see it -
On the main timeline I've got a text field and I want the content to be loaded from an external text file. The text in the text file is the value of a variable. I use loadVariablesNum to load the variable and use the text method to assign the variable to the text field instance.
The problem is - when I test the movie the play head runs through the movie once before the text appears, instead of straight away. Why is this ?
